Superstar attorney Crispi worked with even-more-superstarry attorney Alan Dershowitz on the appeal of Claus Von Bulow, convicted in Newport of trying to murder his socialite wife, Sunny. From the skeletal structure of that experience, Crispi has written a cool and pretty wonderful literary novel that incorporates elements of romance, travel, high society and political intrigue/conspiracy. Swirling amongst the interrelationships of Parisian banker Francois, his ex-lawyer lover Juliet and New York prosecutor Mike, "The Guilty Ones" is a literary thriller of high order.
